'' The function, NetUseDrive, maps a network drive in the same fashion as 'NET USE' ''
'' ''
'' The function accepts the following parameters:''
'' sLocalDevice - a (case insensitive) string containing the local device to redirect (ie. "F:" or "LPT1"). If sLocalDevice''
'' is empty or is undefined/NULL, a connection to sShareName is made without redirecting a local device (ie. pipe/IPC$).''
'' sShareName - the UNC Name for the share to connect to. Must be in the format of "\\server\share"''
'' sUserID - optional, the User ID to login with (ie. "TAS01"). If it isn't passed, the User ID''
'' and password of the person currently logged in is used. (Actually the program is running in)''
'' sPassword - optional, the Password to login with. If it isn't passed, the User ID and password of''
'' the person currently logged in is used. (Actually the program is running in)''
'' varPersistent - must be passed True (-1) or False (0) to be considered. Default is True. If False, the connection remains''
'' until disconnected, or until the user is logged off.''
'' ''
'' The following (long datatype) result codes are returned: ''
'' NO_ERROR(0) Drive sLocalDevice was mapped successfully to sShareName.''
'' ERROR_ACCESS_DENIED (5) Access to the network resource was denied. ''
'' ERROR_ALREADY_ASSIGNED (85)The local device specified by sShareName is already connected to a network ''
'' resource.''
'' ERROR_BAD_DEV_TYPE (66)The type of local device and the type of network resource do not match. ''
'' ERROR_BAD_DEVICE(1200) The value specified by sLocalDevice is invalid. ''
'' ERROR_BAD_NET_NAME (67)The value specified by sShareName is not acceptable to any network resource ''
'' provider. The resource name is invalid, or the named resource cannot be located.''
'' ERROR_BAD_PROFILE(1206) The user profile is in an incorrect format. ''
'' ERROR_BAD_PROVIDER (1204) The default network provider is invalid.''
'' ERROR_BUSY (170)The router or provider is busy, possibly initializing. The caller should retry. ''
'' ERROR_CANNOT_OPEN_PROFILE(1205) The system is unable to open the user profile to process persistent connections.''
'' ERROR_DEVICE_ALREADY_REMEMBERED (1202) An entry for the device specified in sShareName is already in the user profile. ''
'' ERROR_EXTENDED_ERROR(1208) An unknown network-specific error occured. ''
'' ERROR_INVALID_PASSWORD (86)The password sPassword is invalid. ''
'' ERROR_NO_NET_OR_BAD_PATH(1203) A network component has not started, or the specified name could not be handled.''
'' ERROR_NO_NETWORK(1222) There is no network present.''
'' ''
